Kelpak is a kelp concentrate which is manufactured using a unique cell-burst process without heat, chemical digestion or dehydration. This patented process ensures maximum retention of the auxins and cytokinins found in this species of kelp. Kelpak also contains a wide range of nutrients, vitamins and amino acids.
The combination of plant growth regulating hormones impact upon plants in different ways according to the plant growth stage and condition. Auxins and phlorotannins improve root growth; polyamines help to reduce the impact and symptoms of abiotic stress and brassinosteroids promote pollen tube elongation resulting in better fruit set.

Apply 1.5-3 l/ha for most crops, 3-4 l/ha for potatoes, in a minimum of 200 l/ha water.
The spray tank should be filled with half the required
water. After shaking the container, measure the required amount of Kelpak and add to the tank whilst maintaining constant agitation. Add remaining water to correct dilution and spray.
Notes on Compatibility
Do not tank mix with cytokinin products as this will negate the benefit of auxin stimulation. Do not tank mix with copper based fungicides. For further information on compatibility and tank mixing, and for physical compatibility with pesticides refer to the website www.omex.co.uk
